Yesterday Dan & I had Jaxon "dedicated" .......a commitment that we made as parents to raise Jaxon in a way that would honor God, and also "letting" Jaxon go for the purposes God has for his life (when that time comes!). I'm guessing that this is something that we're going to have to do on a regular basis...mentally giving Jaxon back over to God. As a parent it's so easy to constantly be worrying about one thing or another, and there's always the temptation to hold him close and protect him and keep him under our arms of protection. But as we know....our "arms of protection" are not even CLOSE as strong as God's arms of protection.
We were blessed to have both of our parents come for the weekend, and Dan's sister Ange. It was a full house but a good time. Jaxon enjoyed being doted over for all his waking hours. Although he seems to be enjoying playing on the floor again today ;). He didn't see much of the floor this weekend! :)
Here's some pictures of the weekend.
fun with nana
Grandpa & Grandma
This is crazy. Bill (a guy from our church) can hold Jaxon by his feet in the palm of his hand. Jaxon just stands straight up, balancing. It's amazing. Bill says that every baby can do it.
all-you-can-eat brunch after church! Boy was it good!
...and of course after every big meal, sleep in inevitable!
Mmmmmmm.....homemade buns for supper!
I know how to pick 'em! :)
How many grandparents does it take to get Jaxon in his Jolly Jumper?
